MCAN is accepting applications for Program Director for AdviseMI
The Program Director of AdviseMI will be responsible for oversight of the AdviseMI AmeriCorps program at the Michigan College Access Network (MCAN). Under the supervision of the Director of Service Strategy, the Program Director will implement, evaluate, and strengthen the program. The Program Director is responsible for oversight of the program, staff, partner high school relationships, and partner college/university relationships.
The AdviseMI program embeds well-trained, dedicated, near-peer college advisers in high schools that serve significant numbers of low-income and first generation college-going students. The goal of the program is to increase the number of high school students who enter and complete postsecondary education. The advisers are recent college graduates from partner colleges. After an intensive four-week training, advisers serve in high schools around the state to help students navigate the complex college exploration process, take college admissions tests, apply to colleges that are a good match/fit, complete the FAFSA, secure financial aid, and matriculate to college. These game-changing advisers serve as experts, mentors, champions, and guides to the students they serve. They also play a transformative role in the buildings in which they are placed by helping to foster a college-going culture, in partnership with school staff.
